Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield Farms is a massive 700-acre native plant refuge that is located on the banks of Deer Creek in Jefferson County. They offer:

Gardens of the West – Similar to the York Street location, a collection of worldly plants

Butterflies at Chatfield Farms – encounter native butterfly species as they fly through a colorful and lush butterfly house
